The Office

OPENED140 DAYS AGO

The Chicago-based duo behind the Alinea Group have just launched their much-anticipated speakeasy at the top of the Mandarin Oriental, The Office. Owners Grant Achatz and Nick Kokonas have been toying with the idea of launching a bar in New York City for a while now and that day has finally arrived.

The Spot:

Unlike other speakeasy protocol, this one will actually be accepting table reservations through an app (Tock). Everything here screams opulence, there’s huge ceilings for the 44-seat space, rich brown leather and dark wood everywhere and incredibly luxe food and drinks to go with it. While the views of Central Park and Columbus Circle are cut off by the opulence and lack of window space, they have substituted the space with LED lights that mimic the sun setting in the evening.

The Food:

The menu continues the theme of opulence with options like foie gras, jamon Iberico, and caviar. There’s also a $265 seven-course menu that comes with five drinks or an a la carte menu to choose from.

The Drinks:

Again, the opulence is not skipped on the drinks menu either with an entire menu devoted to rare spirits that cost up to $500 an ounce. There’s also a menu of prohibition-era cocktails like an Old Fashioned or Amaretto Sour.

In A Nutshell:

Located within the Mandarin Oriental, The Office, is fast becoming one of NYC’s hottest new bars.
